For a long time, I didn't want to read cuz the subject of SM wasn't appealing to me. Until someone presented it to me on the "relationship" point of view. So I gave it a try. I devoured it in 3 days. Bought the second and third, and devoured them also. That's self explanatory. A bit to explicit when it comes to the details ( I think the sexiness and the sensuality comes through without the "porn" aspect) but all in all, the characters are interesting and so is the story

Are you kidding me....I thought I wouldn't like it after hearing all the hype about it, but I couldn't put them down. I went to Costa Rica in the middle of reading them and they were in my carry-on....LOL!

HIGHLY recommend....first book not as good as the second and third, (but very good in itself anyway) you need to read the first to get the story line.

I was very sceptic about this series. But as I read I was captive to see how the 2 characters would make it work. And the compromise they make for each other. Christian's character seems to be the one that grows and changes the most. I am completely in love with this love story.
I could not put these books down. I read book 1 and 2 in less than a week.

I loved how fast the book was delivered. It came in perfect shape.

The book was an amazing read if you are interested in this type of book. There is a lot of inner monologue by the main character though which at times could seem a bit much of particular words that are chosen to refer to herself. Over all though its amazing. I am glad I bought it.

I purchased this series for my mother for her birthday, since the book store in the area wasn't stocked with the set. My mother absolutely loved it.... And that's all I know about the book LOL

So if you looking for a book for your mother who is an avid reader of fantasy kinda of romance novels then this is a good buy.

I actually read this book and the rest of them based on the BAD reviews. I thought to myself how could one little book possibly be so bad? Fact of the matter is, it isn't. Is it the best book I have ever read? Nope. Is it the most well written book in the history of books? No. Is it my favorite book ever? Not even close.

The book is a work of fiction. It is unlikely that it will be one hundred percent accurate when it comes to the world of BDSM but now that I've brought that up, what book would be? Is BDSM being taught in universities now? Bachelor of arts or science? A lot of reviewers stated they felt that this book was not about the BDSM lifestyle and more about abuse. So is it BDSM or abuse? The main characters in the book seem to ask that exact same question so bringing that up seems to be rather silly.

If you take the book for what it is; a fluffy little soap opera fantasy with a kinky twist then you and the book will get on just fine. If you are an expert in psychology or sociology or BDSM or whatever and you lack the ability to check your pedantic nature at the door, it is likely not the book for you.

I really enjoyed this series!! At first I did not think I would like them but I really did. You have to read all 3 books though. Yes, it is sleazy but addictive. I can't wait for a movie to come out! :) Enjoy!

I picked up this book to see what all the fuss was about. In the beginning, I thought it was going to be a regular erotic romance. It was a little slow going, but as I read on, I got more and more into it - to the point where I Literally couldn't put it down. I really got emotionally involved. This is the first book in a very long time that made me cry several times. A deep, heartfelt cry. I enjoyed reading Fifty Shades of Grey and can't wait to read the two other books in trilogy.

I really liked the book couldn't put it down, it was very erotic, but still romantic in its own way.

After all the hype I had heard about this book, I was prepared to not like it...Once I read the first one, I had to buy the other 2 books! Highly recommend that you purchase all 3 and be prepared to hunker down and read them all at once!!!
